Crews extinguished a small fire in a McDonald's kitchen in Baldwinsville on Sunday afternoon.

According to Baldwinsville Fire Chief Tom Perkins, the fire was created by the deep fryers at the McDonald's at 2234 Downer St. around 3:30 p.m. Sunday.

No one was injured in the fire.

Perkins said there was not too much damage and that any damage was largely contained to the area surrounding the deep fryers.

"There was a lot of smoke," he said.

Perkins added he wasn't sure when the restaurant would reopen. Officials from the New York State Department of Health will have to do an evaluation of the restaurant.

Perkins said those officials arrived at the restaurant shortly after the fire was extinguished.

The same McDonald's location in Baldwinsville had a fire in the canopy of its drive-thru area back in December.
